Redskins Giants First Quarter

Redskins Giants First Quarter

13:15—Not a very aggressive first series there for Zorn. A four-yard pass to Thrash, who has no RAC ability, on third and six isn't exactly pushing the envelope. It resulted in a three and out and a quick punt back to the Giants.

That was too easy for the Giants. Manning easily converted a couple of third and long situations, primarily because he had all day to throw the ball. Smooth was with Toomer on the TD pass, but he didn't make a play on the ball. It goes without saying that the Skins can't get into a shootout here.

8:58—A quick slant to Moss batted away at the line, Portis up the middle for one and then a six-yard pass to Cooley on third and nine that time. I know you have to watch out for the pass rush and all, but come on, Jim. The defense had better tighten up or this could be over in a hurry.

3:23—The Redskins are generating no pass rush at all. Manning has time to survey the field a few times over.

2:42—That is, until Montgomery gets a hold on Manning's jersey for a sack on third and goal, setting up a field goal try.

2:11—They just assessed Ryan Boschetti for five yards for an illegal fair catch on a kickoff. At least he didn't try to run with it ala Pete Kendall. Still, cut the guy some slack, he was watching on TV a week ago.

0:57—Back to back first downs, with the second coming on a nice pass to Moss on which Campbell had some nice touch. The Redskins are in Giants territory.

RGIII reportedly earns tryout with Los Angeles Chargers

Robert Griffin III's career resurgence in Cleveland ended following a lackluster 2016 season in which injuries sidelined him for all buy five games.

The Former 2012 Rookie of the Year finished the season 87-of-147 for 886 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions before being released by the team in March.

But the Redskins' former No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft is not giving up on his goal.

RGIII will reportedly work out for the Los Angeles Chargers, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Griffin III has spent the offseason working out with former Browns coordinator Pep Hamilton. According to Ian Rapoport, who spoke with Hamilton, RGIII is in very good health and is throwing the ball very well.

The Chargers' quarterback situation is as clear as any on the NFL. Phillip Rivers is the starting quarterback. He has been the Chargers' starting quarterback since 2006, and will be the team's starting quarterback until he retires or is traded. And despite Rivers starting every regular-season game for each of the last 11 seasons, the Chargers have no real plan at backup. There's career backup Kellen Clemens and rookies Mike Bercovici (Arizona State) and Eli Jenkins (Jacksonville State). That's it. 

Even if he remains injury riddled, RGIII does that have the tools to bat out backups Clemens, Bercovici and Jenkins.

But for now, it's a step in the right direction for the polarizing former Redskins quarterback.

On Monday afternoon, Whitehead was informed that he was being released, according to Ian Rapoport.

Whitehead told the Dallas Morning News on Monday that he wasn't even aware that he was wanted in court.
